Will My Loved One Be Safe in a Care Home?

The answer to this question is a resounding ‘yes’. However, what kind of safety measures will the resident of the care home have? They will access to important equipment that they need, like wheelchairs, lifts and other mobility aids and dressing facilities (for those who are unable to dress themselves) which are all essential to the safety of the resident. If the residents need a little extra help with their daily lives, having a personal assistant to assist with bathing, dressing or preparing meals will give them the help they need.

In addition to the care home providing the essentials to ensure the residents’ safety, there are also many organisations who offer their services to help those who find themselves in a care home as well. These range from helping the resident to get out and about in a modern environment, through to house-sitting and visiting them at weekends. What you should remember is that whatever your loved one needs, there will be someone to help them.  There are also many charities that can help with providing some of the things that your loved one will need when they go to stay in a home.

Another question that could come up is: ‘what if my loved one doesn’t want to stay in a care home?’ This is a tricky one, but it is possible to find somewhere that your loved one is happy and comfortable. Don’t be afraid to make enquiries and take control of the situation.
